Three-Rice Pilaf Recipe
My family's favorite rice dish is this tempting medley of white, brown and wild rice. I prepare it as a side dish or a stuffing. In fall I add chopped dried apricots, and for the holidays I mix in dried cranberries. My guests always ask for seconds. -Ricki Bingham, Ogden, Utah
